Default **Grill Decency Agent Swamprb reporting for duty!**

With the latest Craigslist acquisitions to the Weber Appreciation Society!

A few weeks ago I scored this Green OTS "EO" (1995) wood handles on the left for $10

Monday was a double whammy with the Black OTS "G" (1985) with wood handles and a Weber Accessories Starter pack with an unused roast rack, charcoal rails, skewers, and drip pans for $10

On the Right side is another Greenie! This is an OTG "DA" (2001) with char-baskets, Weber chimney and cover for $20
I removed the OTG ash collector and replaced it on my Cajun Bandit!









Grill Decency Agent Swamprb signing out until next time! (or you see me on the next episode of Hoarders)

Nice scores man!! So uhh, you interested in selling any of them there lil' fellas?
I have to confess, I've never Q'd anything on a kettle, only ever done burgers & dogs... I'm too cheap to buy a new one and CL around here has no kettles ever...

I'd hate to see kettles start feeling neglected around there...

Quote:
You'll notice one or two letters stamped into the vent dampers of all Weber charcoal grills. This is a code that represents the year of manufacture. In 1979, Weber started using a single letter to denote the year; in 1994, they switched to a two-letter code. Codes were not used prior to 1979.

Here's the list of codes and their corresponding values:
  • A: 1979
  • B: 1980
  • C: 1981
  • D: 1982
  • E: 1983
  • F: 1984
  • G: 1985
  • H: 1986
  • J: 1987
  • K: 1988
  • L: 1989
  • M: 1990
  • N: 1991
  • O: 1992
  • P: 1993
  • EH: 1994
  • EO: 1995
  • ER: 1996
  • EI: 1997
  • EZ: 1998
  • EE: 1999
  • DD: 2000
  • DA: 2001
  • DU: 2002
  • DT: 2003
  • DH: 2004
  • DO: 2005
  • DR: 2006
  • DI: 2007
  • DZ: 2008
  • DE: 2009
  • AD: 2010
Here's some more interesting info about Weber's code scheme.
As always...click on any of the pictures to view a larger image.
Code Example
Here's an example of a vent damper code. This photo shows the two-letter code "EE" from a Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker manufactured in 1999. The code appears on all four WSM vent dampers.
Code Doubles As "Serial Number"
If you call Weber Customer Support and ask for a replacement part during the warranty period, the representative may ask you for the "serial number" stamped into the vent damper. But you now know that the "serial number" is actually a date code, and Weber uses that code to determine if you're requesting a warranty claim on a cooker manufactured this year...or ten years ago.
Vent Dampers Without A Code
There are reports from a few WSM owners that their vent dampers are not stamped with any code at all. This is simply a manufacturing error, but it makes warranty claims difficult because you cannot provide your "serial number". However, if you remember the year you bought your cooker, you can find your "serial number" from the list of codes above.
(Taken from the virtual weber bulletin board)

Peace.

Great score Swamp! I just got rid of a green OTS with wood handles. I found a pre-79 BBQ Kettle that took it's place.

Here's the key for the Weber date codes once they went to 2 charachters:

A U T H O R I Z E D
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

So a date code of EO = 95 (1995), AD = 10 (2010)

Brian, that 85 with the starter kit would probably be a collector item!
